Produced with director and cinematographer Andrew Garrison, "Trash Dance" is a celebration of unexpected beauty, inspired by Orr's fascination with the surprising grace of garbage trucks. The film follows the choreographer as she meets and interacts with sanitation workers in Austin, Texas, shadowing their daily routine for months while simultaneously attempting to recruit them for a dance performance. The project provides a tender portrait of community members whose hard work often goes unnoticed, and sparks a bit of dialogue on the boundaries of art and performance along the way.
Watch the trailer for "Trash Dance" above for a sneak peek at how Orr convinced two dozen trash collectors to perform a choreographed dance on an abandoned airport runway.
